Nov 16th 2011 8:28PM No my comment here is that it is a tiny tiny tiny percentage of people who see that content compared to the rest of wow. I have only recently started raiding and the content is amazing. But the whole thing smacks of frustration in that the content is insanely hard and only a few will see it. Minus the obvious youtubes and walk-throughs.
Blizz has an odd balancing act of keep content hard for hardcores and yet somehow let non-hardcores see new content too. It is a weird place to be in.
I can tell you that I quit WOW before when I hit 85 and could not figure out a good way to continue really. The content before 80 to 85 is insanely easy and the content at 85 is completely jilted the other way. It is still doable and that is the point but there is not much between and the average or casual player gets left behind...
The original comment from the article seemed so out of touch with the average player of WOW who cannot and probably will not ever see that content. So the number is way low as far as I am concerned.
Nov 16th 2011 8:04PM I can tell you what it says, that of those people in guilds only 2% have finished the content. Which is a pathetically small number of people in terms of the millions who play wow. Blizzard has not made the content accessible or available to anyone except that small group.
Feb 27th 2008 5:49PM I have a personal story about it. While trying to lose weight I switched to diet drinks and noticed that I began slowly use the "wrong" words when I spoke. I would say words that matched phonetically but were semantically incorrect. I thought I had a brain tumor to be honest. I quit drinking diet drinks really based on some reading I had done and noticed that the word switching stopped. Since then I have not drank any more diet drinks and have not had the problem.
It is enough for me that I will not let my kids drink them. I think that everyone can have different side effects. But for me I will not drink anymore of them.
